    You're correct, the FBI is part of the Department of Justice. Therefore, the Attorney General is in the chain of command for the FBI. The AG is appointed by the President and approved by the Senate. The FBI Director is appointed for a 10 year term with the consent of the Senate.

    This is after Hoover remained as director for many decades and the Nixon incident.
